where, however, the 2 is to be omitted when m = 0.    Thus by (4) and (16) the divergent wave at a great distance r is expressed by

Here JVm, Dm are given by (19), (20), and are real. In like manner (8) may be put into the form

And, as in (22), the expression for the diverging wave at a distance is

When we fix the refractive index at 1'5, the value of z'lz — zjz1 in (24), (25) is 5/6.
The values of Nlt NI, A. A' inay be deduced from the corresponding quantities with m — 0 by means of the relations

A = A',   A^A-H/zOO/zOO...................(28)
For numerical calculation we have also to specify the values of z, or ko. For this purpose'we take ^ = '4, '8, T2,1'6, 2'0, 2'4, where z denotes the ratio of the circumference of the cylinder to the wave-length in air; the corresponding values of (N/D + \$i7r}~1 and of (N'jD' + ^irr)"1 may then be tabulated.
The next step is the calculation of the series included in the square brackets of (22) and (26) for various values of d from 0 = 0 in the direction backwards along the primary ray to 6 —180° in the direction of the primaryht-hand side of (5)
